From Us to You - Happy Valentine's Day...

Monday, February 15, 2010

I hate to be a scrooge...but I've never really liked Valentine's Day. Ever. Seems soo silly to be out spending a small fortune on flowers and cards and what not because the calendar tells you to.
Doing that on a random day...when the prices on said flowers aren't as inflated...sure - that might be nice...but Valentine's Day...
harumpf.
Add in the fact that this year marked ten years to the day, that my Dad passed away suddenly after suffering, what else, a heart attack...and well...
I'm just not into this whole Valentine's thing... I thought about writing a special post about my Dad...and I still might...but my thoughts are still pretty much right on to what I wrote two years ago...and while I started going thru my boxes and boxes of old family photos (oh how great it is to have digital now...) I just don't have it in me right now to do it...

But again, not to be a scrooge...Valentine's Day (a Sunday this year) came and went with pretty much no fanfare this year...but Monday...the kids had a great party at daycare where just like last year, they came home with more loot they we know what to do with...and then I surprised them with some clearance cupcakes to enjoy after dinner...

They were a hit...


And just for fun...here's a small clip of the kids saying Happy Valentine's Day day (like we have in years past (2008), and in 2009 )and talking about how you can mix the different colored frostings together to make paint!?!
